Wild Fire (The Kingson Pride, #2)

Wild Fire (The Kingson Pride, #2) Loved it, lots of twists and turns some I even saw coming Loved it, lots of twists and turns some I even saw coming Ok, loved 98.9 % of the book.I hate it when my heroine seems to get kidnapped in ever book and even though m m is NOT my thing , the hints about the brothers Gabe and Troy were just wrong I won t go into specifics but there were at least two weird things mentioned about them, that news trying to ignore when after having sex w Riley the brothers are in bed in one side of her and Andrew in the other and the brothers start to cuddle each other and Riley is liking it thinking its kinda hot WTH The brothers give her naughty looks and Troy seems to start to feel Gabe up,before he laughs and pushes Gabe off,Riley whimpers to Andrew asking hinting as to if he knows just how close the brothers are,sadly not turned off in the slightest Hey, if they have enough shared DNA to be called brothers it s incest and that ain t cool Ever if for some sick reason thought it was hot and eventually something needed to be done at some point What needs to be done Riley Do you want two of your men to get it on w each other Two brothers at that Seriously Now, Riley in all other respects is a very cool Badass h and i think she s awesome But that is soooo NOT right,personally I don t get she could encourage any of her men in this , I thought she was like me in the I don t share dept selfish or not, if I were blessed like this I wouldn t share, but incest Please don t go there I mention it because it seriously creeped me out and every time I saw the guys together after that or their dependence on each other was mentioned or their often fragile mental states , I got a lil stressed worrying where it might lead The worst part was while Riley kidnapped,thankfully not alone all this time but still it was pretty bad..I love it, I really really did But the crap w brothers took some of the fun out of it me and kept my stress levels even higher than I would have liked What was also interesting was,I guess who tried to buy Riley yet again and who was going to show up at the endThe end part I can see why the characters never saw it coming ,but their kidnapper Yeeeeah, the guys should have figured that one out for themselves, not to take from Riley she really is smart but they should have seen it themselves, it was a bit too obviousI eagerly look forward to 3.5This series is far from perfect, and it is still a bit cheesy, but seeing Riley get kick ass was pretty satisfying, and I m enjoying the ride, despite its faults The second novel is far worse than the first Once again the author shows a painfully limited vocabulary with the use and overuse of the word Fuck It isn t edgy it s downright lazy writing I kept asking myself where the editor was when reading such things as he twisted her chin bones Or such gems as balls deep Who thinks that s sexy This author did, because I read that horrific line far too many times in one book The main character once again is supposed to be this magnificent pinnacle of enlightened feminism, yet all I see is a whiny, spoiled, and annoying gold digging Mary Sue What this author needs is a good dictionary, and a good editor Please, someone get this author an editor I m working on writing my review now It will be posted here eventually after it goes live on my blog I swear I m not going to let my reviewing get this far behind ever again and I m probably lying. Alternate Cover Edition Of ASIN BDJ This Is A Reverse Harem Series With Graphic Scenes, Mature Language, And Mature Themes Suitable For Ages Full Length Novel Of , Words Riley Has Her Pride And Now It Seems Like Their Lives Might Go Up In Flames As Hunters Target Them Secrets Of The Pride S Past Come To Light, Old Grudges Resurface, And Riley Needs To Stay Strong If She S Going To Survive Not Only Against Their Enemies, But Also With Her Own Pride, The Five Males Who Have Carved A Place In Her Life And Offered Her A Family She D Never Had The Hunters Won T Be The Only Thing That Underestimated The Cheetah Of The Kingson Pride And Riley Will Need To Learn How To Fight Fire With Fire Seriously hope there s books I love this series so much Great read , i liked this book as well as the first one I loved how independent the main character, Riley was in the book and how she got to be the hero instead of one of the guys guurl powah bish Let s call this a 3.5 stars I would give it a 4, because ultimately I really enjoyed it despite the quibbles I mentioned as I was doing this re read.On balance, this is an exciting, tense, rollercoaster of a ride with strong characters that I care about I mean seriouslyher harem is pretty damn yummy The story is engrossing, with plenty of dark to balance the light, giving it decent emotional heft So despite stylistic issues my editor s brain wants to fuss over, I have been really enjoying Banet s series.I am a little disappointed with the direction Troy and Gabe have taken, since I m not much for submissive men in my harem But Banet has managed to keep it minimal and not too obtrusive, at least as long as the boys emotionally heal from this wrenching installment in the next book And your mileage may vary, because they are still great characters with plenty of appeal, humor and fun And with plenty of flaws to flesh them out.Riley s character could be considered by some to nudge that Special Snowflake Mary Sue line she is a very strong character with a lot of skills who manages to go through an awful lot and remain strong But I honestly think Banet only flirts with it I think Riley has plenty of flaws and character issues and emotional trauma to work out enough to balance her And hell, I prefer my heroines to bewellheroic So it works for me and has added to my enjoyment of the series Without such a strong MC, it wouldn t be possible for all the excitement in this series at least not without the equally enormous problem of an MC that is constantly in need of rescue ugh.Oh, and I think Thomas is an especially yummy character I kept trying to work out some way for her to get him in her harem But that won t happenso now I am hoping that Banet will write a second series about him and his small pack MmmmThe book builds to a very satisfying climax even if just a hair unrealistic but I am okay with that because I don t want my heroine s to be TOO damaged And it even includes a nice, if not entirely unexpected, twist at the end that sets up for a potentially great conclusion in book 3 Can t wait to go read thatso I am off to do so Warnings There is some very dark material in here from Riley s abusive background to some seriously dark stuff in this novel So beware those of you with triggers There is also explicit sex And a lot of it Lots In many variations and combinations And some of it very very hot fanning a hand in front of my faceOverall, I am really loving this trilogy so far, and the fact that this is my third time through book 1 and my second time through book 2 should be some indication of that Oh hell, you know what I am going to bump my rounding of the 3.5 stars to 4 instead of rounding down to 3 UPDATE NOTES 80.0% Okay, and now I m remembering that the second half of this totally makes up for any issues I had in the beginningand even for all the hell and darkness and mess Riley had to go through to get here Yes 8.0% Gah, ESPECIALLY when it is just filling in the 6 month gap that occurred in the epilogue of the last book That is just too confusing Either don t write the epilogue, or put the six months in the prior book if you absolutely must have them.7.0% I had forgotten about the structure on Book 2 While I am still enjoying the story and the characters, I m really not a fan of the chapter a month concept as a way to make time pass quickly and show a developing relationship I d rather just have a big time skip and then start again when it s time to start the story again The gap can easily be filled in with passing references and occasional flashbacks sigh Unfortunately, I have a similar criticism to how the first book made me feel I think everything is just too rushed for me The first few chapters skip through SEVERAL months, with each monthly chapter giving a select view into Riley s bonding with one of the guys For me, it felt like we were just checking off a list cue bonding moment with Brenton CHECK, cue moment with Zachary, CHECK There just wasn t a smooth quality to the flow, and I felt like they were almost little vignettes instead of building towards the overall plot Outside of the jerky exposition, the story flowed alright We do see some relationship building in this installment, and it s becoming obvious to both Riley and the guys that their feelings for each other are real and worthy of being recognized So far, I think some of the deepest connections are being formed between Riley and the brothers For me, they had some of the deepest vulnerabilities, and they wind up coming to light and tying into the plot What I DID like was some strength coming from Riley In the first book, I was disappointed not to see personality, oomph from her We definitely get that in book two, and there are some surprises in store for the pride as far as dominance issues are concerned I liked that she s becoming confident and coming to recognize her own power, to demand fair respect as a member of the pride Along with the issues from Riley s oh so selfish mother, we re getting into a new world by running into the shifter hunters I thought this was an interesting concept, and it gives us another place to focus on besides just the inter shifter disputes Not only do the shifters have enemies amongst themselves, but there are also groups out to kill them, sell them, and maim them The danger and deception wind up running closer to home than the Kingson pride could ve expected Overall, I m standing by my reaction to book 1 Since the series is on Kindle Unlimited, I ll probably continue to check it out However, I just haven t been wow ed to the point where I d purchase it or put it ahead of others on my TBR list. From Daphne to DynamoRiley has gone through a lot in her 2 years in Wild Junction but things are starting to go really crazy around her Human hunters, betraying shifters, government agencies, and worse her pride that trained her to defend herself is trying to baby her again She s come too far to allow herself to be coddled She s proven herself in several situations now kidnapping, break ins at home and the diner They should trust her But pretty soon they ll be glad of her training Because someone huge is going on in the Shifter Hunter world and all that time is going to pay off The pride might even get through all of it as long as they trust in her Oh, this was a hard read for me Trigger warnings for assault, sexual assault, near rape and captivity The story starts off ahead of the diner break in that ended the 1st book and catches us up to that event I still feel like the leopard brothers are shortchanged a bit in this book, too So much is going on with them but I feel like they get used a bit and placated with sexy times than emotional bonds I like the shake up in pride structure, that was interesting I also like bringing the other varieties of shifters in I know this is feline focused but it s nice to visit other species And I feel like it lays the foundation for spin offs Another plus
